Thanks Packer, I do as well. Not to incur the wrath of the gods or anything, but it's looking ok so far:
Shortly after getting the seeds yesterday afternoon, I dropped them in a glass of SD tap water. They were all floating when I was getting ready to go to bed around 11 pm.
I kind of dunked them a bit with my finger tip and 5 or 6 of them sank. I rolled the rest of them gently against the side of the plastic glass and all the rest except 2 sank.
I rechecked in the AM and 2 were still floating. I gently rolled them between my fingers and they sank as soon as they hit the water again.
I let them sit in the water until I got ready to leave for work an hour or so later. I put them in a moist paper towel, then in a zip lock bag and then put the bag onto a small basin on a heating pad and covered them with another basin. Tonight, when I got home, one seed has a minuscule rootlet and another seed capsule has cracked.
I'll check them again in the morning to see if there's been anymore happening
